Our world is a very different place than it was before September 11th, 2001. Now, more than ever, we need the power of prayer or meditation in our lives. Several years ago, our friend Eileen was the inspiration for beginning a series of nine Novenas.
Novena to St. Jude
"May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us.
Novena to St. Patrick
O Great Apostle of Ireland, and Patron of our people, so many are indebted to you for the great treasure of our faith. Receive our fervent thanks for the zeal and charity that has been an invaluable source of blessings to so many of our brothers and sisters. We ask your intercession for (here mention your intentions); asking you to submit all our temporal and spiritual needs to God. We pray great St. Patrick, that we always be devoted and loyal; our thoughts be of Jesus; our hearts be His shrine, so that when our life's path has been trod, we may be found worthy of eternal salvation. We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, Amen.
Novena to St. Joseph
Oh Saint Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
Say for nine consecutive mornings for anything you may desire. It has seldom been known to fail.
"The word spectacular seems to fall a little short. So I will add supurb,unrivaled, breathtaking,and exquisite take your pick of words they all apply. A beautiful new addition to your very lovely site." ME

The Galway Hooker
This unique vessel, with its distinctive curved lines and bright red sails, originated in the village of Claddagh. During the 19th century, hookers supported a significant fishing industry and also carried goods, livestock and fuel. Seán Rainey is remembered for building the last of the original boats, the Truelight, for Martin Oliver who was to become the last king of the Claddagh; as king, he was entitled to white sails on his boat. Since the mid seventies, many of the old sailing craft which were on the verge of extinction have been lovingly restored and new ones have been built. During the summer months they can be seen at festivals such a Cruinniú na mBád - the Gathering of the Boats - in Kinvara.
